I've considered buying this hybrid and I was wondering.. Can I house 1 in a 46 gallon?
Thx in advance

My parents are making me get rid of my Rams and looking into a Flowerhorn.. My parents are so gullable.. some guy told them that Flowerhorns bring good luck and I'm forced to take care of itallibobs said:They are very very nice fish, I'd love one but sooooooooooo don't have the room :-(
it really is.. Gosh darn it.. My rams were about to Spawn too! sigh.. but my mom said if I can keep my Flowerhorn alive for 6 months.. I get to buy a 125 gallon tank.. Luckily for me, Flowerhorns can live in most water conditions as long as its not extremeharpua2002 said:Aw, that's rough. That must be pretty frustrating for you.
Really?! I saw that some people split up a 75 gallon into little sections to house their Flowerhorns. what's that about?Nutter said:Depending on the size of the Flowerhorn is when you get it you might be able to keep it in your 46gal for 6 months so long as it's on it's own. They really need at least 75gal as a permanant home but 46gal should be ok as a temporary home so long as the fish is under 4" when you get it.
Flowerhorns are very nice fish but they are also highly aggressive. Don't get tempted to put anything else in the 46gal with it & when you get the 125 gallon choose only the toughest of fish to be tank mates.
The best advice I can give you is that you ask your parents to wait until they actually have the 125 gallon before getting the Flowerhorn. Things happen in life & it would be a shame if they couldn't provide a suitable home for the Flowerhorn because something unexpected happened.

Fits my situation perfectly.. Especially with the asian parents that have a fish tank for one reason T__Tbtate617 said:Many people I know in the hobby who are Asian, their parents are not into fish, however their parents have one tank going for this very reason.
